:shock: can't believe there are 3 pages ITT. No accreditation (or provisional; same difference) = Eternal Regret. DO NOT GO.

And enough ragging on PCL. It has infinite more integrity and value than this piece of shit law school (not sarcasm).

1) scholarships almost assuredly have harsh stips that make them very easy to lose
2) it's not free; you have to pay cost of attendance
3) you don't have a good chance of getting a legal job

so your saying if they go and graduate, pass the bar, they will not get legal jobs? lol
The least they can get is government jobs, or even start their own firm.
I know they will not be getting a job at DLA Piper,
first 5 years is going to be tough for them, after that no body cares about which school you went to. (besides debt free).

lol bar passage does not guarantee a job

lol 45,000 legal grads compete for less than 30,000 entry level positions nationally

lol try starting your own firm with almost no network and no idea how to practice law or run a business

lol people from prestigious schools want the few govt. jobs that are left after budget cuts

Lol the ignorance of these statements is laughable. There are lots of people from UNC and Wake who CAN'T find gov't jobs. Seriously, CSL is not in the running for 95% government jobs. I'm not making these statements about CSL to be elitist, I am saying these things to warn people of the mistake they are making.

At CSL...approx. 20-23% of students are of color which mean 15-20% are black and 3-5% are other races; however, the top black leadership (Associate Deans, Finance, other Directors) consists of 75% of the management. This is way out of balance for a bunch of old 60's black activists (terrorists)... I find this appauling and blatently based upon the color of their black skin. Time's will change and the market will take care of their racism...it's very obvious their strategy is to hire blacks at the expense of the vast majority of 75% white students while supporting policies to encourage this selective racism in our educational institutions going all the way back to Brown v. Board of Ed. The reality is the blacks want forced and mandated power from Uncle Sam given to themselves (a sick way of getting back at Europeans from centuries of oppression but thankfully we're not a socialist regime and you have to work your butt off to get ahead in the US not just wake up one day and get the power and prestige because you're black...just like the average white dude has been doing for centuries folks) and they could care less about who the best for the position is...they support black issues, black people, black organizations, black agendas, and black programs to benefit them only supported by the NAACP. Pretty simple.

Typical bunk journalism. I kind of had to laugh at the retraction of sorts at the end of the article. That most of the guys debt came from UG and a masters program and not law school. As long as you don't go 100K plus in debt at a tier one school you will be fine. Although, that doesn't mean you will be raking in the bacon either.

One thing is for sure though, I would not want to be in the bottom 10% of any LS class.

yea being at the bottom 10% would suck especially when the school supports those that regularly score that low...for the sake or profit...money...cash

This is the only school I got into, and I was wondering what people's thoughts were, given my situation:
-I got some scholarship
-I won't be in debt after I graduate
-I have an mba, want to do small business planning, and have very good job prospects in TX (where I live) lined up after I get a JD, so how the school ranks in NC does not seem as important
-I would rather start in the fall than sit out another year
Any thoughts would be much appreciated

As others have mentioned, read the stipulations on your scholarship very carefully. Chances are you have to be top third or something to keep it and there's a good chance they'll stack all the scholarship holders in the same section competing against each other so it's impossible for everyone to keep them.

Charlotte is a for profit law school. Meaning they exist to make a profit. Off of you.

Good call, I'll check out the scholarship stipulations. Aside from that, assuming I will be debt free, would it still be a bad idea to go?
